Taskmaster #2 [2010]




TASKMASTER #2

The Org puts a billion dollar bounty on the Taskmaster for leaking intel to Commander Steve Rogers. Now Taskmaster must redact the bounty by retracing his steps to recover his identity so he may find the Org. Along the way he has hooked up with a waitress by the name of Mercedes so has mistakenly been added to the bounty.

Taskmaster and Mercedes hijack a plane to Mexico locate his “memory place.” There he meets with the Don of the Dead and realize his first mission for the Org was retraining Mexican Special Forces. Both of them escape the clutches of the Don of the Dead and head aboard on a ship bound for Bolivia and the Andes. Mercedes is revealed to be a S.H.I.E.L.D Agent working for Nick Fury.

REVELATIONS
- Taskmaster was a former S.H.I.E.L.D Agent
- His “Saint Death” mask was from his first mission in Mexico to show solidarity
